Visiting the Parks for Easter at Disney WorldOne of my favorite times to visit Disney World is during the spring. Spending Easter at Disney World is extra special because they make it such a magical time with special events, holiday treats, and unique brunches. 

Easter at Disney World tends to be one of the busiest times of year due to many schools having Spring Break either the week prior to Easter Sunday or the week after.

We have found that Easter Day wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be (at Magic Kingdom) and try to make that our stop on Easter Sunday.

Wondering how Disney World makes Easter a little more magical than other times of the year?

Easter at Disney World

Easter Bunny at Disney WorldEaster at Magic Kingdom

At Magic Kingdom, you will be able to meet Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny. They appear throughout the day in the “Bunny Lane Garden” in the Town Square Courtyard. 

It is a great picture spot to have a family shot taken for Easter.

Azalea Trail MaidsYou will also find Azalea Trail Maids. These are a group of 50 high school girls dressed in bright pastel period dresses with matching parasols. 

You can also see the pre-parade featuring Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny, Daisy Duck, Thumper & Ms. Bunny, White Rabbit, Rabbit, Clara Cluck, Hippos, Ostriches, Dancing Chicks and the Azalea Trail Maids

You may take photos of them or with them. 

Disney Easter Egg Hunt at EpcotEaster at EPCOT

One of the most popular things to do at Easter in Disney World is the Eggstravaganza Scavenger hunt.  Hidden throughout the World Showcase are Disney character Easter eggs. 

Spike's Pollen-nation Exploration MapYou can purchase Eggstravaganza Easter Egg Maps and stickers for $6.99 at Pin Central, Disney Traders, or World Traveler shops.

While you don’t have to purchase the map to look for the hidden Easter eggs, if you do and locate them all, you can get a free “prize” upon completion.
